“All of us at The Composites Group were very fortunate to have Highlander Partners as our sponsor. Highlander Partners willingness to invest in the business, including add-on acquisitions, substantial investment in multiple plant and process expansions, significant investment in research and development efforts, along with a long term view of building the management team over the 7+ years of ownership was instrumental in achieving our aggressive growth targets and successful sale to Citadel Plastics.”

“Highlander Partners’ agility, speed and knowledge have helped PCI Company consummate transactions when it would have been difficult—if not impossible—with other financial institutions. As a management team, Highlander Partners has the right balance of oversight and empowerment. They live up to their name by truly partnering in the formation and execution of strategic plans. We are fortunate to be guided by the experience and expertise of the team at Highlander Partners.”

“With Highlander Partners guidance, Chamberlin Edmonds was able to successfully grow its business. Before partnering with Highlander Partners, we saw numerous opportunities for additional expansion, but were in a situation where our capital needs were not aligned with our existing ownership structure. To grow, we knew we needed to overhaul our capital structure. As we assessed our options and evaluated prospective partners, Highlander Partners proved a solid match for our needs. Their overall investment philosophy, experienced team of professionals and willingness to provide guidance, support and influential contacts paid dividends well beyond our expectations.”
